Stories that broke the Internet

Looking back at the year we see so many things that have happened and taken the internet by storm. From marriages, to legal proceedings, to just random stuff, some were laugh worthy and entertaining, while others became a headache for all. Here are a few of these happenings that we think were note worthy.

Junoon Concert

After 13 long years the band finally came together to play live! It was a night to remember on December 25. The reunion didn’t take place overnight; rather the efforts were being made for the past couple of years. It was a major highlight of the year!

#MeToo, Ali Zafar and Misha Feud

Amidst the heat of #MeToo allegations that had taken Hollywood by storm, our local artist Misha Shafi also had something to open up about. Although the singer didn’t reveal details of the incident, she claimed that she had “been subjected, on more than one occasion, to sexual harassment of a physical nature at the hands of a colleague from my industry: Ali Zafar.” Once that was said on twitter all hell broke loose, with Ali Zafar sending her a defamation notice from the court. Though things simmered down pretty quick.

Ko Ko Korina

Certain things need to be left alone, and Ko Ko Korina is one of them. The recent cover sung by none other than Ahad Raza Mir and Mohmina Mustehsan, did not fare well with majority of the population.

In My Feelings Challenge

While we are on the topic of challenges, this year the “In My Feelings” Challenge took the world by storm. It started with Instagram user theshiggyshow dancing to Drake’s hit Scorpion song “In My Feelings” in June. Since that original video was posted, it spread like wildfire, and everyone from Will Smith to Sterling K. Brown started getting in on the dance challenge, mimicking the moves flawlessly.

A really very Long Wedding!

Two of the major hearth throbs, Muneeb and Aiman tied the knot this year. And apparently it was the longest wedding of the year, with a dholki, a mayun, a party, menhdi, barat and walima. Seems it the regular deal, but people still felt uncomfortable with the long wedding.

Saudis lifted Ban On Driving

For the first time in history Saudi women were allowed to get behind the wheel. A long standing ban which rendered women from driving finally came to an end. This was without a doubt a major step towards women empowering.

Kar-Jenner babies

It was a year where the Keeping up with the Kardashians family grew by not one or two, but three family members! Sisters Kim, Khloe and Kylie were blessed with baby girls.
